When 2018 California State Teacher of the Year award winners aren’t grading papers, preparing assessments and assisting children, then you may find them throwing out the first pitch at a Dodger baseball game or on a tour abroad learning about culture and education.
“It’s a tradition for the Teacher of the Year Foundation to send the five Teacher of the Year winners to Japan,” said Erin Oxhorn-Gilpin, a teacher at Northlake Hills Elementary School. “The idea is to have cultural immersion, see other schools and be a representative of the California education system.”
Castaic Union School District celebrated the five employees who will retire prior to the beginning of next school year at Thursday’s district meeting of the governing board.
“Thank you for your dedication to the Castaic Union School District,” Superintendent Steve Doyle said to the outgoing employees in attendance.
Teachers, aides, campus supervisors and the other classified staff members at Northlake Hills Elementary School were treated to Sweet Beams Ice Cream Wednesday in honor of Castaic Union’s Staff Appreciation Celebration.
